DineSafe is a mobile app that helps people with food allergies not only find where they can eat but determine what they can eat from the restaurants listed. Our posts helped DineSafe increase awareness of their app to those with food allergies.

When you first log on to DineSafe to set up an account you have the opportunity to enter information as a restaurant or a user. For restaurants this allows for easy upload of information into the app and the ability to keep their menu up to date. If you set up your account as a user the first thing you do is enter your allergens and your diet. It’s a quick and easy set up which allows the user to enter their options and move on to the next step. – ChronicMom
A few weeks ago I was introduced to a new app via Twitter – DineSafeApp. Unlike the various apps to help you find gluten-free restaurants, DineSafe actually lets you create a custom menu based on your allergies, so that you know in advance what foods are safe for you. It doesn’t matter how many allergens you have, and it’s not even just the top 8 allergens, they include over 15 different allergens. They also include special diets like vegan, Paleo, Organic, and Kosher. It will be so nice to avoid those stupid spreadsheets they give you at some restaurants. – Julie Ryan of Counting My Spoons
